OMG that was painfull. I felt sorry for Allen. Was Chris tripping? Chris was more coherent during the Stern interview. Of course Stern is basically an idiot ...

i always liked the BC music. i saw them 2-3 times. but those guys always scared me for some reason. i mean i did the same drugs as them prob drank and smoked as much, but they were always scary, i don't know why.


I tell you who scared me , were the Gallagher brothers, Liam and Noel. More so Noel.
I saw them once ,and when Noel was not singing he would stand back a few feet from the mic and just glare into the crowd. Every once and awhile he would say something to the audience , and from what it appeared it did not seem to friendly. I was just waiting for him to jump into the crowd and pop someone for looking at him the wrong way. Good band though.

Neal Casal was great with Ryan Adams in the Cardinals. I've seen him once with CRB.

I'm a big Crowes fan and they didn't short change me. After getting back together for thier last run in 2005....originally with Marc Ford on guitar and then ending with Jackie Green.....they toured a bunch, released some pretty good albums (that had a handful of great songs on them). They did some great acoustic HD TV shows, and a cool acoustic album of their hits.

I got to see them in 2500 seat theatres and ampitheatres, doing acoustics sets, fully on electric shows of deep cuts, and sets made up more of hits. They always jammed a lot and I didn't find that the music changed all that much in concert (probably a little less jamming with the Jackie Greene lineup at the end). No 2 shows were the same. The albums had a few new song types/sounds that wouldn't have been on their first 2 albums, but that's kind of expected all those years down the line.....

I heard Chris wanted ownership with his two partners, Rich & Steve, to be his employees (or minority partners to his majority). Even if that's right, it sounds like he was ready to move on. Nothing lasts forever and they made some great music and gave me 8 more productive years at the end I didn't expect.

“Let’s get this straight: I don’t like my brother, I don’t get along with him, I don’t want to be in a room with him and I don’t want to play music with those people in that band,” said Robinson in the segment, which you can sample below.

That antipathy extends even to the hypothetical possibility of the Crowes being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an event Robinson vowed he would refuse to attend — partly because he views a visit to the Hall as “like going to the mall.”

Robinson also doesn’t much care for Dead & Company, the touring act that sees guitarist John Mayer sitting in with surviving members of the Grateful Dead. Calling the Dead’s legacy a “giant nipple that everyone sucks off of to get money,”

Robinson aimed his ire at Mayer, unfavorably comparing his ability and artistic depth to Dead founder Jerry Garcia‘s.

“Everything that Jerry Garcia ever talked about or stood for – John Mayer is the antithesis,” argued Robinson. “There’s nothing unique about his playing. Jerry was one of the most unique musicians in the world. Jerry never played anyone else’s licks and now here’s John Mayer playing everyone else’s licks.”

I thought early Crowes were more Faces than Stones.

Him and Warren seem to be ok now since they have done some shows together in the past couple of years.

I'm writing about their entire music careers, and personal lives.

Chris does not like Warren Haynes. See one minute into this video and his body/facial language when Warren is mentioned. It's pretty funny.

Love chris as a frontman for rock n roll but damn he just can't keep his mouth shut. That's probably what makes him good at what he does. That being said throwing insults at John Mayer makes chris sound immature and jealous. You know chris would rather it be him singing those songs and going on stadium tours with original Dead members but it isn't. To say John Mayer "just knows the licks," is ridiculous. John Mayer is deep-rooted in blues, as was Jerry, which is more than we say for chris - who can hardly play any licks well enough to take leads.

In fairness, that could've been GIRD. Seemed like he was hiccuping as he asked "who?". That said, Chris Robinson is a d!ck. He really doesn't like Johnny Popper. Some choice clips from Stern show where he is bad mouthing Popper.

My 10th-11th grade algebra/math teacher went to high school with the Robinson brothers. [Yes, she was fresh out of college and it was her first teaching gig.... ]

Figured this would be a trainwreck, but waited for it to play out. Shame this guy is so full of himself. The realm of musicians that he operates in, rarely have this sense of self importance. It's really a shame when he was a part of such a wonderful band that made great music and performed even better.

Feel sorry for his brother and the rest of their former band.

Nice bash. I like this guy.

I don't really have strong opinion on The Black Crowes either way, but I found this interview with their drummer, Steve Gorman, incredibly engaging. He's now a sports radio host, which is evident, because the man can talk. It's a nice counter/companion to Alan and Stern's Chris Robinson chats.

I have only heard one Chris Robinson Brotherhood release, but it is a very sterile, watered-down Grateful Dead derivative sound. Chris really can't bag on John Mayer or the Dead if he releases stuff like that.

That said, I love Chris's voice.

what happens to a rocker is fascinating stuff when they start to cringe over hearing their mega-hits with a former band?

Chris really didn't offer much when Howard started playing the BC music back to him. I was listening on the radio, and could feel him not digging it. He was more comfortable when Howard was stroking him, "You're the best, so talented, such a rebel....." Its what makes Stern a great interviewer , he knows his subject.

Too funny.

I'm not a fan of either Mayer or the Robinsons; but it was funny how Chris bashed Mayer and the dead guys, yet thinks nothing of butchering dead songs, and pretending to be Jerry/Mick, and being a huge **** .

I saw the crowes live once and my friends and I made fun of how Chris tried to be all androgynous and tried out dance moves like Mick Jagger on stage.

Even Gregg is not a fan of the Robinsons: "As he walks past us, Warren goes, 'Gregg, Gregg! This is the Black Crowes, the two brothers from Georgia I told you about.' And he looks at me … and Gregg goes, 'Who gives a **** ?' And he walked past us!" Chris recalled to Howard.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood opened for Mule last night and Chris and Neal came out and played "Sometimes Salvation" with them.

That was likely more Gregg being an ass and not knowing who they were and just brushing people off than not being a fan. Also during that interview Chris thought it was funny because he said Gregg was right.

I think Chris is an ass as well and find it disgusting the way the Crowes ended because of his greed, but let's at least be somewhat fair about it. He thought it was a hilarious situation that Gregg dismissed them. Gregg's treatment of people circa 1990 probably has nothing to do if he was a fan of them or not and more how much he was on at the moment.

Chris and Neal played what people wanted to hear, and both bands got a chance to promote themselves even though ticket sales have not been that good for mule recently.

Crowes songs are far better than anything by Chris or Rich's solo bands and side projects create.

Ok, I get it. You really hate Chris Robinson.

Agreed, the Crowes have always been one of my favorite bands and the CRB isn't at that level.

I don't "hate" him. I do agree with you that he's a douche and greedy, one of the main reasons why the crowes broe up, self-centered and difficult to work with-just look at the revolving door of crowes members through the decades, and makes music about a contest or all about his ego instead of working together with people and being cohesive.

Thanks for the interview Alan. You did a great job with what you had to work with. Chris is a different cat for sure.

I did listen to the Stern interview. I would beg to differ that Howard is a great interviewer and knows his subject. Alan's was much better, IMHO. All Howard could do was reference pretty much the first album and talk about Chris's time with Page. You think Chris REALLY wanted to discuss the BC and Jimmy for a good part of the show? I doubt it. I am sure if it was anyone else doing the interview Chris more than likely would have shut it down.

Really did not like to hear negativity from Chris towards his brother and also when his wife started talking too. I understand they do not get along and whatever , but keep that stuff behind closed doors. It does not make you look to good, cause there are three sides to every story.

I like Chris as a vocalists. but his music is not my cup of tea. After I heard Rich's Live At The Knitting Factory 13 yrs ago, to be honest I was indifferent whether or not I ever heard any new material from the BC again. If they did great, if not ,fine. I was and still more interested in what Rich can do as a solo artist or in a band minus his brother.
